Meet Solitaire - Matt and Em Bruty, a young husband/wife couple from the English coast who produce gorgeous and quirky silkscreen prints.

Matt and Em are inspired by the eccentricities of English tradition, British birds and garden life, vintage crockery, childhood nostalgia, living by the seaside and the love of tea drinking!

I have recently started working with them to find a market for their work in Australia. At present it is available on a range of beautiful hand-printed cards...

They are nice enough to frame.

And also on lovely tea towels. They are huge and soft with a vintage-edge finish and ribbon loop.

And finally these very nice cotton place mats, which are decorated with vintage china and posh cutlery. Love these! They would make a brilliant wedding gift.

One of the things I love about Solitaire's work is that it is full of quirky details - ants at a summer picnic, snails popping up everywhere and butterfly cakes with real butterflies! You can see the whole range here.
